Eh, I could do without the chest-thumping in the GDT. If Vancouver falters, the Blues/Blackhawks could well be the class of the Western Conference, battling it out for the top two spots. (The Kings have never had a great regular season, just eked into the playoffs and then got super hot at the right time.)

Tonight should be a good game, but I give the Blackhawks the edge this time.

Haha I was just messing with him because the Hawks fans were going pretty hard about how arrogant St. Louis fans are. So I showed him arrogance I don't have anything against the Hawks, and they're definitely a good team. I look forward to tonight's game. Blues and Hawks always play great games.

Congrats on the lower murder rate then us though.

The Rams are going to be really good very soon. 4 #1 picks these next 2 years too. I was only messing with you guys anyway. I actually like Chicago a lot. We are up there all the time with my daughters soccer. The Hawks have a really good team. Their top 6 can play with anybody. If the Blues don't stay out of the box, the Hawks will make them pay early and often.

Really hope the Blues get a little more aggressive on the PK. Kane, Toews, Sharp, Hossa etc. will eat us alive if we give them that much time and space.

Our PK does need to improve, but Nashville is one of the best in the League on the PP.

The PK might have been nervous viewing, but we could very easily have had a goal or 2 from it last night, to add to the one on Saturday. It will be interesting to see if we are still as dangerous when it gets settled in.

Can't wait for this one, the top dogs of the central facing off. Should be good games every time we play them. I hope we beat them like they stole something but that won't happen.

Should be a great game and a real big test for the Blues.

LOVE all the ugly jealousy on the Hawks GDT

It doesn't matter how good/bad the Hawks are or how good/bad we are, I have always hated that franchise more than any other franchise in all sports by a mile.

But when we're both very good, it's definitely a lot more fun to hate them.

I completely agree about the Blues needing to be more aggressive on the PK, because it was tough to watch last night and the Hawks will completely eat that up. Think this one is a high scoring affair. Kinda have a bad feeling about it already but I think the Hawks will struggle in our building too. Would love to see a third straight win and really looking forward to Tarasenko's Chicago debut. Won't be near a computer for this one.

I'm fine with some of it, but the whole thing about trashing our fanbase...It's pretty low. One of my best friends is a Hawks fan and we don't make broad generalizations about each other because simply, they'd be wrong. I suggest everyone stay away from that board and try to be a better person than the claims.

If Stewart truly is rebounded, having that element on the Blues would really make a difference from last year when the Blues would play competitively but lose in Chicago and he didn't help. Here's hoping he helps put them over the top this year.

**** I forgot this was their home opener... I don't see us winning this one. Their building will be rocking (and we never seem to play well in their arena anyways) and their offense is hot right now.

It could be a good game and I think Perron bounces back tonight, but it'll be tough and I think Chicago might hand us our first loss. But even if they do, that's what makes the first 2 wins very big.

Can't stand the 'Hawks either. They're probably my least favorite team. They're good though and this will be another gritty game.

Blues win tonight boys come on! 4-2. The crowd will be loud obviously but I think it will work in our favor, well see.

Chicago has looked great but they played against two terrible goalies/unorganized teams. Did people even watch the games? Blues will play far better than the yotes or kings. Also, the Hawks have no depth. They have 2 lines. Im not buying into their defense against us either. We have more firepower than ever and we always have had close games.

Schwartz, Shatty, Berglund, Perron

I actually had one of my college classes with a Hawks fan and the dude was pretty cool and hockey knowledgeable. We chatted about Blues, Hawks and the NHL in general just about every class. It's sad that a small bunch of people who make generalization comments about an entire fanbase ruin it for the other more rational people.

I don't mind the Hawks players, or their long-time fanbase, as much as I hate the Hawks bandwagon. It's truly the most pitiful bandwagon in all of sports. Chicago sporting events are social gatherings I feel sorry for the true hockeys fans in Chi-town (because there are a good number up there)...but the yuppies are the ones that buy the tickets to bring their Ugg wearing girlfriends to, who are only there to look good in their Uggs and Kane jersey, and post "Go Hawks" to their facebook timeline.

There's a lot less of that in St Louis (though St Louis has a lot more problems inherent to the city)

Looks like they'll be a lineup change(s) according to the '**** in O'Neil's blog.

Any guesses?

I could see him wanting to get Langenbrunner in.

Interesting. Because on this page you really don't find people trashing the city of Chicago. I mean, if Hawks fans have a problem with Blues hockey, that's fine. That's hockey. But trashing a city? Sounds like you've run out of hockey things to ***** about.
